"The demise of Republican gun legislation in the Senate and a stalemate over renewing the assault-style weapons ban thrusts gun control squarely into the fall presidential campaign, both sides in the debate say." ...

" 'You can be sure it's going to be in the presidential campaign as a bona fide issue as to whether the American people want AK-47s, street sweepers and Uzis sold once again,' said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., one of the chief sponsors of the assault weapons ban."
 

Great News! -- Feinstein semi-auto ban is dead, as Senate shoots down gun control bill (GOA Report)

"First, the U.S. Senate voted to renew the Feinstein semi-auto ban. Then it voted for the McCain gun show ban. All this in addition to the 'Lock Up Your Safety' requirement that Senators tacked on to the lawsuit protection bill last week."

"You will remember that Gun Owners of America had warned senators last week to oppose S. 1805 if it was loaded down with gun control provisions. Thankfully, pro-gun senators heeded the call to kill the bill once it was turned into an anti-gun abomination. These senators were joined by their anti-gun counterparts who opposed the underlying bill because they still want to bankrupt the gun makers."

"Over the past few years, a deluge of lawsuits have targeted firearms manufactures, claiming they should be held liable for damages done with a gun. Now Congress is considering a bill to shield the manufactures from frivolous suits."

"The goal of the anti-gun lobby is to throw up thousands of suits against the manufactures, hoping to put them out of business." ...

"In the short run, we need to pass the bill to shield gun makers from frivolous law suits. They will still be liable for defective products, or for selling a weapon to a known criminal. And in the long run, we need tort reform to stop such suits from being filed against anyone in such a manner. Freedom of business is at stake here. Because if one industry can be bankrupted in this way, yours could be next."

"Here's a nasty little stat: Just 1 percent of gun dealers supply 57 percent of the guns used in crimes. These are dealers like Washington's Bull's Eye Shooting Supply, which supplied the assault rifle the D.C. snipers used to gun down their victims – as well as guns traced to 52 other crimes including homicides and kidnappings. But if this bill ever becomes law, the families of those murdered by Muhammad and Malvo would be denied the right to hold Bull's Eye accountable in court."

You, ma'am are a liar. The gun shop did not "supply" Muhammad and Malvo with guns. They stole them. But it doesn't matter to you if small businesses are destroyed by your political agenda of lies, does it?

"Legalization of a constitutional right to carry a concealed firearm will not happen for Wisconsin gun owners thanks to the governor's veto and the treachery of one of the measure's sponsors in the state House, Rep. Gary Sherman (D-Port Wing)."

"Sherman, having sponsored the bill when it was introduced in the House, was the single vote that killed the effort to override the governor's veto. Why Sherman would do this is perplexing since he comes from a district that voted over eight-to-one for adding language in 1998 to the Wisconsin constitution protecting the individual right to keep and bear arms. Perhaps he has planned to return to private life after the next election."

"Sheriffs who are baffled by how to implement Missouri's concealed guns law following a state Supreme Court ruling may have themselves to thank for the confusion."

"That's because the language cited by the court as triggering an illegal unfunded mandate was added to last year's concealed weapons legislation at the behest of the sheriffs' lobbyist." ...

"At issue in the Supreme Court's ruling is a provision requiring sheriffs to charge applicants for concealed gun permits a nonrefundable processing fee of up to $100. The law directs the money to local accounts that can only be used for law enforcement equipment and training."

"Sheriffs therefore cannot use the money to pay for the required fingerprint and background checks, or for the personnel needed to handle the applications, the court said."

"...But of all the attractions of Sin City, one of the most sublime isn't advertised on the city's billboards or spelled out in neon letters on the Strip—in fact, it isn't even on the Strip. Instead, it's a few miles east, in a nondescript building kitty-corner from a Wal-Mart, a low-slung, windowless building with a sign out front that says, in big letters 'GUNS—Indoor Range.' This is the Gun Store, and it is where locals—and, especially, out-of-towners—come for the rare opportunity to fire off anything from handguns to machine guns on the in-house target range. Nevada's gun-control laws are sufficiently relaxed that, in exchange for plunking down a few 20s and a photo ID, it's possible to while away an afternoon with some of the deadliest weapons known to man."

"A special panel reviewing a 15-day prison hostage situation in Arizona will recommend that guards be allowed to carry more kinds of weapons and receive more self-defense training." ...

"The panel arrived at its conclusions after hearing several days of testimony over the past month from prison officials and correctional officers, including the two held hostage by two inmates in a watch tower at the state prison in Buckeye." ...

"Auch told the panel last week that officers need to be able to carry more than pepper spray. He said the standoff wouldn't have lasted 15 days if the tower guards had been able to carry side arms."

Now apply the same testimony to the defenseless in NYC, Washington, Boston, Chicago . . .

"A new study shows that Illinois has more 'post-ban' assault weapon manufacturers than any other state, according to the release of 'Illinois: Land of Post-Ban Assault Weapons' conducted by the Violence Policy Center, based in Washington, D.C."

"Although the federal assault weapons ban was passed in 1994, the gun industry has willfully circumvented federal law and created through a process dubbed 'sporterization' a new generation of assault weapons and re-named them 'post-ban' or 'after-ban' assault weapons. The gun industry has evaded the intent of Congress to get military style semi- automatic assault weapons off the streets by making minor cosmetic changes and producing 'clones' and 'knock-off' versions to continue to sell for profit at the expense of public safety."
